Don't Scrooge Yourself: 8 Reasons to Bump Yourself Up to the Top of the List

Being a mom means you’re used to being busy, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy, and especially not during the holidays, when you have to juggle all the usual stuff plus the extra shopping and parties and performances that happen this time of year. Luckily, some just-for-you indulgences can help keep you in the spirit of the season, and even small luxuries (may we recommend a dessert from Edwards—your choice of Pumpkin Crème, Georgia-style Pecan, or Hershey’s Chocolate Crème) can go a long way toward brightening your day. Here are eight reasons to treat yourself this year.


1. Because hauling a sled loaded with kids up a giant hill forty times in a row isn’t your idea of a cozy winter weekend.

2. Because we all know who’s going to end up wrapping a dozen last-minute presents into the wee hours.

3. Because you survived a day of mandatory togetherness with those relatives.

4. Because sitting through a three-hour school concert deserves a sweet reward—make that two if your kid is playing the recorder this year.

5. Because you have to make four separate main courses to keep everyone happy around the Christmas dinner table.

6. Because the office holiday party has karaoke.

7. Because you’re in charge of buying gifts for everyone, from kids to teachers to the garbage man to your husband’s third cousin once removed...and sometimes even for yourself.

You’re a holiday hero, Mom! How will you reward yourself for making it through?
